This question is a function of personal preference. For price, we recommend the Gildan G500. It is an all cotton shirt, that holds its shape and seems to meet the needs of customers who want to wear and give away shirts.
A softer version of the G500 is the Gildan Soft Style. This shirt is a little softer and smoother and a little lighter, so is a great summer shirt. This is great for resorts, marina’s generally places that want to sell a shirt.
